Apple shares went up about 15% after the stock split announcement. Tesla was up 6-8% in after-hours.

  1. It’s probably irrational, I agree, though a split in the value makes it more fungible such that some people who could not buy a 1400 USD stock can perhaps buy two stocks for 560 USD and thus raise the demand. So perhaps some valuation is to be expected, but whether 6–8% is “just right” requires someone with more of the right kind of skills than I.

  2. It’s kind of crazy that a stock split would cause the stock price to rise. A little irrational Exuberance has infected the market
